Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Real Madrid v. Getafe Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

Real Madrid received a huge boost in their quest to win the Liga title, as Barcelona drew 2-2 against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday. As a result, Los Blaugranas fell one point behind Los Merengues, and Zinedine Zidane's men have this Thursday's match against Getafe in hand. As a result, Madrid could take a gigantic step towards winning the league if they clinch the three points. Real Madrid are also riding a five-game winning streak and seem poised to extend their streak in this contest. Los Azulones enter this game on a four-game undefeated streak, but they have won just once in their last five. To make things a bit more complicated, Getafe have gone W2, D1, L2 in their last five away contests despite owning the league's fifth-best record on the road (W6, D4, L5).

Top Picks

Karim Benzema, Real Madrid: Benzema didn't score last week against Espanyol, but he set up a goal and continues to find ways to contribute on the score-sheet. The French striker has three goals and one assist in five matches since the league resumed last month and should lead Madrid's attack once again.

Thibaut Courtois, Real Madrid: It's hard to give a goalkeeper a big role in terms of captaincy in any DFS matchup, but Courtois fit the bill Thursday. Getafe average just over 1.0 goals per away match this season, while Courtois has kept a clean sheet in three of his last four home games.

Captain and Vice-Captain Options

  1. Karim Benzema
  2. Thibaut Courtois
  3. Eden Hazard
  4. Marcelo
